Holiday Box Office Even Worse Than Estimated

Box office revenue for the holiday weekend plunged deeper than originally estimated, led by Little Fockers , which, although landing in first place, took in $30.8 million, down from Sunday's estimate of $34 million. The Chronicles of Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader, came in at $9.48 million, down from Sunday's estimate of $10.8 million. And Gulliver's Travels turned out to be a more gigantic dud than the studio had anticipated, taking in just $6.31 million (Saturday and Sunday only) versus the $7.2 million that the studio thought it would wind up with. Overall receipts (three studios, Paramount, Sony and Warner Bros., were closed and did not report final results on Monday) were down 49 percent from a year ago, when Avatar ruled the holiday box office with $86.5 million.

The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Box Office Mojo (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date) 1. Little Fockers, Universal, $30,833,665, 1 Wk. ($45,083,800 -- From Wednesday); 2. True Grit, Paramount, $25,600,000, 1 Wk. ($36,818,000 -- From Wednesday) estimate; 3. Tron Legacy, Disney, $19,151,498, 2 Weeks, 87,373,703); 4.
